Jan.26 - Day 2/Week 2

Posted 02-02-2012 at 11:42 PM by seriouscat

Went to the hill after work to practice. Lots of kids around, so getting off the chair lift was a bit of an adventure. Just canít turn well enough yet on one leg to dodge all the loligagging people on top of the hill. Skating was much improved.

Again I went down couple times on heelside traverse only for some confidence. Worked on traversing toe side for the next hour. No major issues. I got tired of sitting down to switch between toe and heel, so I started to experiment with turning. Toe to heel side was easy if not smooth even the first time around. I was able to do the same turn riding switch. Heel to toe was another story, a lot of of falls and ugly turns. I even jumped into a turn once.

After slamming on knees really hard into the hill with the jump, I paused for a sec and got really pissed off. This was probably the turning point for me as I am now determined to get this down no matter what happens. What followed was a bunch of the ugliest and untechnical heel to toe turns you will ever see. I used the back foot to power thru a lot of them. However I did make the turns,and was really able to enjoy myself for the last hour of the session. Thinking back this last hour is the probably the first time I ever enjoyed snowboarding for the sake of snowboarding, and not the scenery or the experience of the trips.

Total hours spent:
2.5 hours

Falls/fatigue factor:
Smoked my knee once. Not as tired except on my left calf. Probably from powering thru the turns in-properly.
